Clouds

Clouds 1973 by Dave Kueker
(originally for the piano)

C Dm7
I used to not like the clouds (thoughtful, jazzy mood)
Em7 F
I used to think that clouds should not be allowed (descending line: F E D C D C) C Dm7 And then I learned a lesson Jesus taught Em7 F
Seed couldn’t grow until the rain had been brought (*descending line: F E D C D C)
C Dm7 Em7 F (hold)

C Dm7
The seed that you plant, you know
Em7 F* (descending line: F E D C D C) Needs some rain, so that it may grow C Dm7 Without the rain that storm clouds bring Em7 F
Few seeds would grow and be able to sing: (*descending line: F E D C D C)
C Dm7 Em7 F (hold)

CHORUS
C G C G Dm7 F
Thank you for the darkness turned to day!
C G C G Dm7 F
Thank you for the light shown on my way!
C G C G Dm7 F
Thank you for the tender, loving way!
F Dm7 C
That you love me, Thank you, Jesus!

C Dm7
Now when I feel the rain (joyful, almost boastful)
Em7 F*
I raise my hands and I praise God for the pain (descending line: F E D C D C) C Dm7 And in some way I do not know Em7 F
These trials of rainy days will help my soul to grow (*descend line: F E D-D-D C)
C Dm7 Em7 F (hold)
(And I want to grow…)

CHORUS
